Heretical Gaming is my blog about my gaming life, featuring small skirmishes and big battles from many historical periods (and some in the mythic past or the far future too). The focus is on battle reports using a wide variety of rules, with the occasional rules review, book review and odd musing about the gaming and history. Most of the battles use 6mm-sized figures and vehicles, but occasionally 15mm and 28mm figures appear too.

The Peninsular War Narrative Campaign

I have decided that the most appropriate form of campaign for me at the moment is the Narrative Campaign.  This will mean the only 'campaign' element is the conservation and development of forces, as successful troops gain status while defeated troops may lose status.  The actual scenarios will be taken from old wargames magazines and the Scenarios for All Ages book by Grant and Asquith.

The Situation:
The year is 1812 and the Anglo-Portuguese Army commanded by Lord Wellington has begun its advance into Spain.  His immediate objective is to capture the two Western fortresses of Spain, Ciudad Rodrigo and Badajoz, then defeat the Imperial forces sent to oppose him, then liberate the Spanish capital Madrid.
